A nice bright Monday Manicure to start the month

Morning… My nails were painted on Friday at the amazing Birchbox Manithon event, and they still looking fresh and pretty to leave on for another day. But I did break one nail so, so annoying. I love bright nails especially as the sunshine is so sporadic at the moment.

The colour is by Models Own and called Beach Bag




What are your nails looking like on this sunny Monday as we start off a Sensational September?  xoxo


The Birchbox Manithon I get to be PAMPERED!!

So yesterday I jumped on the train and headed up to Soho Square in London for the chance to actually be pampered and get a manicure by someone else wooohoooo!!

Birchbox hosted a Manithon event in the gorgeous calm setting of Soho Square amongst the urban jungle of busy London streets and skyscrapers.


The sun was out and so were the gorgeous ladies in the masses, it was a lovely atmosphere and I really enjoyed meeting the lovely Birchbox team and chatting with them about the boxes, products, ideas and events!

I could feel good about it all too as it was all for a very good cause and one that most of us have had touch our lives.  Coppafeel, a charity set to make sure all breast cancers are found and diagnosed and the earliest stage. Personally my Nan is a survior she found her lump early, not everyone’s so lucky so like me I’d recommend you get a free monthly text from Coppafeel to have a feel of ya boobs just to remind they need to be checked, so there are no excuses! Text ‘BOOBS’ to 70300.


Christine was my nail tech she was so friendly and shaped my nails perfectly before really spoiling me with products and choices and I absolutely adore the Models Own colour we picked it’s called Beach Bag. (I loved it so much I went and brought a Ted Baker top to match it after! Hehe)

Then the team spoilt me some more with a goody bag and choice of lush testers to take away! All in all it was just a perfect day I got to meet Sarah Jane Crawford, I got to be inspired and share my ideas chatting with the Birchbox team and I had fun doing what I love beauty (and then shopping shhhh!)

If you couldn’t make it but want to make a difference you still can Birchbox have these gorgeous t-shirts exclusively designed by Sally Paye Cotterell 100% of the proceeds go to Coppafeel!


And don’t forget if you want to feel spoilt like me and recieve a box of beauty treats every month you can subscribe right… Here!


Monday Manicure & My New Birchbox Manithon Tee

Morning! My manicure today was done the other day as Birchbox sent me this fab Models Own Hyper Gel Polish and I just couldn’t wait to try it, they also sent me a fab Birchbox Manithon Tee which I can’t wait to wear to the event in London this Friday.


The Models Own Polish in Turquoise Gloss glides on beautifully with a strong colour straight away and no bubbling, it’s nice to apply and I love the finished result.
I combined it with The Nails Inc Kensington Passage a gorgeous bright coral to make it really pop, I recieved that from Grazia Daily as part of my Monday Manicure prize.
I also reverse painted the underside of my tips to make my nails really eye catching.

Now more about Friday…
I will be getting a manicure from someone else wooohoooo! It’s a rarity I know but it’s also for an amazing cause.


Birchbox are hosting a Manithon in association with Models Own, in London Soho Square. They have the gorgeous Sarah Jane Crawford who I love listening to on 1xtra and is now the face of the xtra factor, plus she retweeted my bright red lips last week, I’m actually a bit excited!  I met her before at a boxing fight but I’m feeling confident enough to actually say hello and introduce myself if I meet her this time haha! Pretty nails crossed!
